Media notes

Common Bronzewing walking and feeding. The Common Bronzewing (Phaps chalcoptera) is probably Australia’s most widely distributed native pigeon, occurring over most of the continent. The Common Bronzewing has iridescent bronze-green feathers on its wings, and its underwings are copper and that colour is revealed when it takes off with a loud clattering of its wings. Common Bronzewings are mostly seen singly or in pairs feeding on seeds on the ground. Elevation: 249 m. Date added to IBC: May 3, 2018.
